Qisda Readies Plans to Minimize Trade War Impact


Reading time ( words)

EMS provider Qisda is well prepared to cope with the adverse impact from the US-China trade war, a Digitimes report quotes company chairman and CEO Peter Chen as saying.

Qisda adopts three measures and the first one is to shift some production lines from China to Taiwan, Chen said, adding Qisda has adopted an Industry 4.0 smart manufacturing solution at its factory in Taoyuan, northern Taiwan, with its automated production lines capable of making products of diverse models in small volumes.

If production in Taiwan is also affected by the trade war, Qisda will take the second measure to shift production to its factory in Malaysia, which currently produces contact lenses and is poised for production for other product lines. If production in Malaysia is also impacted, Qisda can construct production lines in the US via cooperation with local partners, and Qisda already has identified potential partners.
